I have a Sadowsky semi hollow. My problem is that I live in a wet area and the metallic parts ( including the pickups ) are a little bit rusty.

Can anyone tell me a good product to clean them up?...and How to do it properly?

Practical Explanation ( For Example ) :- `1st of all can you tell me every single seconds detail from that time when you born ?? ( i need every seconds detail ?? that what- what you have thought and done on every single second )

can you tell me every single detail of your `1 cheapest Minute Or your whole hour, day, week, month, year or your whole life ??

if you are not able to tell me about this life then what proof do you have that you didn't forget your past ? and that you will not forget this present life in the future ?

that is Fact that Supreme Lord Krishna exists but we posses no such intelligence to understand him.
there is also next life. and i already proved you that no scientist, no politician, no so-called intelligent man in this world is able to understand this Truth. cuz they are imagining. and you cannot imagine what is god, who is god, what is after life etc.
for example :Your father existed before your birth. you cannot say that before your birth your father don,t exists.

So you have to ask from mother, "Who is my father?" And if she says, "This gentleman is your father," then it is all right. It is easy.
Otherwise, if you makes research, "Who is my father?" go on searching for life; you'll never find your father.

( now maybe...maybe you will say that i will search my father from D.N.A, or i will prove it by photo's, or many other thing's which i will get from my mother and prove it that who is my Real father.{ So you have to believe the authority. who is that authority ? she is your mother. you cannot claim of any photo's, D.N.A or many other things without authority ( or ur mother ).

if you will show D.N.A, photo's, and many other proofs from other women then your mother. then what is use of those proofs ??} )

same you have to follow real authority. "Whatever You have spoken, I accept it," Then there is no difficulty. And You are accepted by Devala, Narada, Vyasa, and You are speaking Yourself, and later on, all the acaryas have accepted. Then I'll follow.
I'll have to follow great personalities. The same reason mother says, this gentleman is my father. That's all. Finish business. Where is the necessity of making research? All authorities accept Krsna, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. You accept it; then your searching after God is finished.

Why should you waste your time?
all that is you need is to hear from authority ( same like mother ). and i heard this truth from authority " Srila Prabhupada " he is my spiritual master.
im not talking these all things from my own.

in this world no `1 can be Peace full. this is all along Fact.

cuz we all are suffering in this world 4 Problems which are Disease, Old age, Death, and Birth after Birth.

tell me are you really happy ?? you can,t be happy if you will ignore these 4 main problem. then still you will be Forced by Nature.

if you really want to be happy then follow these 6 Things which are No illicit sex, No gambling, No drugs ( No tea & coffee ), No meat-eating ( No onion & garlic's )

5th thing is whatever you eat `1st offer it to Supreme Lord Krishna. ( if you know it what is Guru parama-para then offer them food not direct Supreme Lord Krishna )

and 6th " Main Thing " is you have to Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare ".
If your not able to follow these 4 things no illicit sex, no gambling, no drugs, no meat-eating then don,t worry but chanting of this holy name ( Hare Krishna Maha-Mantra ) is very-very and very important.

Chant " hare krishna hare krishna krishna krishna hare hare hare rama hare rama rama rama hare hare " and be happy.

if you still don,t believe on me then chant any other name for 5 Min's and chant this holy name for 5 Min's and you will see effect. i promise you it works And chanting at least 16 rounds ( each round of 108 beads ) of the Hare Krishna maha-mantra daily.
Here is no Question of Holy Books quotes, Personal Experiences, Faith or Belief. i accept that Sometimes Faith is also Blind. Here is already Practical explanation which already proved that every`1 else in this world is nothing more then Busy Foolish and totally idiot.
every `1 is already Blind in this world and if you will follow another Blind then you both will fall in hole. so try to follow that person who have Spiritual Eyes who can Guide you on Actual Right Path. ( my Authority & Guide is my Spiritual Master " Srila Prabhupada " )
if you want to see Actual Purpose of human life then see this link : ( {Bookmark it })
read it complete. ( i promise only readers of this book that they { he/she } will get every single answer which they want to know about why im in this material world, who im, what will happen after this life, what is best thing which will make Human Life Perfect, and what is perfection of Human Life. ) purpose of human life is not to live like animal cuz every`1 at present time doing 4 thing which are sleeping, eating, sex & fear. purpose of human life is to become freed from Birth after birth, Old Age, Disease, and Death.

Hey, tnk you very much. Maybe you are the famous Maurilio Mina, Smiley thank you very much for the replay, you are always kind, we have talked months ago by mail about some pickup, as usually, ahaha. Yes, someone told me that Roger has used Bartolinis in those years, but obviously i'm not sure about it, i can say that the sound is so sweet and fantastic for slap and pop and when i solo neck or bridge pick up i do not ear any hum noise. That's all i know. I would really like to know something more about it. About the strings the bass have on the Ernie Ball purple cover, very very soft, and not so much character, that's good but even not so good for B string which need a little bit more tension. I'll try the Sadowsky Black if have more tension. Cheers from Italy. Smiley

Ciao Roberto,
piacere di conoscerti e benvenuto nel mondo di Sadowsky!
Lets keep this "international"  :-)
The bass is indeed gorgeous!

Roger has used Bartolinis and EMGs in the beginnings, but than moved to DiMarzio for his Humcan J pups, both 4 and 5 strings!
Nowadays Roger uses Nordstrand too… I know the DM HC have gone through some tweaks through the years, but I'm not sure of the timeline.
I would contact Roger directly and see what he has to say about it!
Strings also matter a lot, on my Sadowsky I use SS blacks (I've experimented with several different strings, but TO ME the blacks are IT)


(BTW, your english is good)

Hi everybody i'm Roberto a bass player from Italy and i would like to share my happiness about my first Sadowsky. After 20 years of bass playing, concerts, lessons, kilometers along the Tuscany and the whole middle Italy countries i've finally decided to buy my DREAM BASS, a very nice Sadowsky NYC 5 string produced on 1996. It is a used instrument and kept in a very nice condition after all these years. A wonderful bass, swamp ash body, quilted maple top, maple fingerboard and neck. The previous owner has updated this baby with the VTC so now is really full optional Smiley. Very light body, this swamp ash is very very light, the whole is really balanced as the strings output, the sound is so pure and clear, every note ring has they must ring, long and clear. I own 12 basses, from Fender JB 77, to Precision Fullerton, G&L, Steinberger MMan and on and on, but when u wear a Sadowsky, you cannot believe to what you are feeling. Of course is not a bass good for all season IMO, but i can cover many kind of music i'm playing with the bands and artists. I usually add few bass and treble to the flat tone because i like the organic wood sound without adding extra frequencies. One thing i have to say; the sound is so so sweet and soft even if fucused and it cut really through the mix, but I've thought that the sound could be more aggressive and with more string attack due to the ash body, maybe is due to the kind of pickups used in the 90's, would be nice to know if someone really know about the pickup producer at that era and which is the difference between the actual pickup used, along the years has been used different pickups as i know. Anyway is a wonderful instrument and i hope to buy another Sadowsky soon, maybe a Modern 5-24 with ebony fingerboard! Cheers everybody and hope u like my new baby!! Smiley I wanna say thank you to Roger for the love he bring on his work…every day!! PS: Sorry for my bad english Smiley

Hey David.....I have to agree with Gerard and his sage advice. Also sanding it and changing finish could change the tone....IMHO.

Hey Louisy77:

My name is Gary. I also go by the Mad Hatter here on the forum. I will try to answer some of your questions.

1. You can get either the single coil or the humcancelling in the Metro line.
2. Yes, you can pay $500.00 dollars deposit. It will take the whole 5 months. I just got my 2nd Metro 2 weeks ago. I ordered it in Oct 2013. Its worth the wait Grin
3. If you are talking about vintage options, yes it is possible. Position of pick up location on some models and they come with the Vintage Tone Control (VTC).
4. Finishes for the body....3TB (Three Tone Sunburst).....Like the older fender Jazz & P basses / 2TS (Two Tone Sunburst) ...Only two colors on body and 59 Burst.

Go over to the website and look at the NYC models to get a feel of what the 59 Burst looks like. Then go to Fender's website or ebay to see the 3TS & 2TS look like.

Mine that I ordered has the 3 Tone Sunburst look that I talked about above. Hope this helps you some. Also reach out to Roger Sadowsky (Owner) he always answers his emails and he can advise on shipping costs to Korea.

take Care.....Gary

I knew about main things between NY and Metro in sadowsky web page

But, I want to know more things.

Metro line, is it possible single coil pick up for MV4 model?
is it possible vintiquty options?

I live in Korea and Sadowsky dealer is here, schoolmusic.
but, too expensive to buy.

Do I order Metro bass directly Sadowsky guitars?($500 deposit,delivery 4-5 months)

Last. I don't know what differents between 3TS, 2TS and 59B.
